Everest Base Camp Trek Accommodation
Everest Base Camp Trek accommodation will be basic tea houses for boarding/lodging.This is the most popular style of trekking to Everest Base Camp and simply involves trekking from teahouse to teahouse. Teahouses are essentially small hotels find in local villages that offer both a place to sleep as well as home cooked meals. Rooms are typically shared with 2 trekkers in a room. Bathrooms are shared as well and in the Everest Base Camp Trek, the lodges usually have running cold water and western style toilets. Also the hot shower is also available but it need to pay extra cost for it.
In some of the villages on the trek, it may be possible to have a private room with an extra cost and we will do our best to arrange that. However, during busy times of the year there is a limited amount of lodging available in some of the villages so it's generally impossible to arrange private rooms. This is the case even if you're willing to pay extra since the tea house owners will not give out a private room if it means someone else goes without a room.
Everest Base Camp Trek Meals/Food
Trekkers can choose a meal/food from the menus at the tea houses. Typical meals on EBC trek includes omelets, toast, boiled eggs, noodle soup, fried rice, macaroni, momo, vegetarian curries, pizza or chow mein. The traditional Nepali Dal Bhat which consists of rice, lentils, and a vegetable is all you can eat and always a good choice. Meat on the mountain is not hygienic and we suggest trekkers stick with vegetarian options.
There is not a problem for vegetarian food and in fact we recommend that everyone stick with a vegetarian diet on the trek as the local meat is not refrigerated properly. If you have special dietary requirements just let us know and we will make sure to assist with the proper menu.

In a serious case evacuation would be by helicopter.

To spend night at Everest Base Camp requires special permits which are very expensive. There is no tea houses at Base Camp. So it is better to stay at Gorakshep and trek to Everest Base Camp for a day trip.
The most difficult and underestimated aspect of the EBC trek is the altitude. The trek steadily climbs as the path winds it way upto Base Camp. The key to high altitude trekking is go slow. The EBC trek would be very basic indeed if it was not for the altitude in fact. Please seek and research altitude sickness to make yourself fully aware of the symptoms and treatments available. There is no correlation between altitude sickness and fitness levels gender or age. Everyone is potentially at risk.

Yes, there is a good mobile phone reception on the Everest Base Camp Trek.There is good internet coverage in all small villages and stations in Everest/Khumbu Valley though it is expensive (but faster than connections at many places in Kathmandu) as it is owned by a private company by the name EverestLink. From them you have to buy volume not time and after activation it is only good for not more than a day.
There are a number of internet cafes along the route. There is one in Lukla and several in Namche Bazaar. After that there are several dotted along the route, including a good one in Gorak Shep. Be warned though, these internet cafes are not always reliable and signal is often poor/lost. Most tea houses will offer wifi, however, this will come at a cost that is usually more expensive than an internet cafe.
At the lower altitude like Lukla, Phakding, Namche the guesthouses provide the facilities of hot shower. And in rest of the places (at higher elevation), warm water in the bucket will be provided for shower. For all the showers, it costs you extra about USD 3-4 per shower. The higher you go the hot shower is expensive.
Cash transaction is highly recommended during EBC trek. Please change the currency in local Nepali Rupees before you trek to everest base camp. The ATM machine is available only in Namche and relying on it is not a better idea as you never know when things stops working. Also if you try to exchange your foreign currency there you would be getting very less exchange rates. So changing money from Kathmandu and taking Nepalese cash is a good idea that is recommended.
The hotel in Kathmandu provides the free storage services. So you can leave all your items that are not required for the trekking at your hotel or you can leave in our office too.
This is a difficult thing to gauge. We have seen everything from USD 20 to USD 1000 per person for guides and porters. Tipping is not required, but a small gesture of thanks to your guides and local porters. The level of the tip should reflect the level of satisfaction from and personal involvement with your guide. However, we recommend you to spend minimum 10% of your total trip cost for tipping entire local staffs, the ratio of tipping guide and porter will be given to you at the pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu before starting the trek
These facilities will be available in most of the places in your hotel reception by paying some charges. Remember to bring TWO and THREE pin travel adapters! You can also buy the adapters in the super markets or electronic shops in the Kathmandu. Our guide can help you with it.
Yes, most of our departures sell out during the peak seasons but during the off season we generally have smaller groups. We guarantee all departures so once you make the deposit you can be assured we will run the trek for you even if you would be alone there at the same group cost.
